Linda Beigel Schulman, mother of Scott Beigel who was killed in the Parkland school massacre last year, will be on hand Tuesday for Gov. Cuomo’s State of the State Address.
The Dix Hills resident will be heading to Albany Tuesday morning, fresh off her return from Florida.
“This is the most amazing honor, a privilege,” Beigel said of the invitation to attend the speech. “I think the world of Gov. Cuomo as a person and he’s someone who when he says he’s going to get it done, he makes sure to get it done.”
Since her son’s death on Feb.14 last year, she has become a gun-control activist. Last week, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul and Schulman spoke at a rally at Half Hollow Hills East High School to support Cuomo’s proposal to toughen rules on gun control.
